Plot & Details

Mambo Italiano director Émile Gaudreault takes the helm for this Montréal-set comedy drama pondering the unique relationships shared between mothers and daughters. As Clara's mother lay dying, she mournfully voices her regret for never taking the time to truly connect with her daughter. Emotionally shattered by this revelation, Clara vows that she will direct all of her energy into bonding with her twenty-one year old daughter Bianca. But sometimes when we probe to deeply into the lives of loved ones we find things that are unexpected and shocking. When Clara realizes just how little she really knows about Bianca, coping with the unsavory truth about her little girl proves more difficult than she ever anticipated.
